I have a new bike coming in today and I don't have a torque wrench, but I need to install a rear derailleur and a 20mm axle to a marz z1. How "tight" do I need to bolt these on? I have the L-shaped allen wrenches.. turn by the short end?
thanks!

I'm too out of it to be funny in the morning. :eek:
but no.. serious question...
like crank bolts, you gotta really torque them down hard. stem bolts.. tighten as much as you can with just your wrist..

Tight is Tight

Don`t overdo it with alloy stuff. Buy some loc tight or some lube for about every nut,bolt.
A torque wrench and all the attatchments,always nice ,but.
Get it just tight then carry a tool with you and check it again.Don`t reef.
Good sense will usually do it.
Loc tight them little derailer hanger bolts while your down there.
